Ebay seems to be one way to go.

Otherwise do a search on the turbo you're after and you're bound to find countless jap parts sites with em.

Yeah buy only good qual turbos as theres heaps of crap made these days... pay the price cos you'll more than likely have to replace a cheap one

Is it possible to identify an original garrett from a replicated one, for example?
Dont they have some sort of serial number you can use to enquire with?
Cheers.

No idea mate but if your chasing a t3 or something like that get it off a jap import yard as all the turbo's on those motors are garret I think.

Better than buying unknown stuff from E-gay. And at least you can have a good look at it and check it out in person.

All turbos should have a metal ID tag on the back of the compressor housing... stating brand, ARs, ect. A dodgy one wont say garrett.

Most Jap turbo's are made by Jap companies..Like the Nissan engines..Yes T25 / t28 size's but actually made by Hitachi etc....
